I conclude the step to turn off UAC is the step that made running "install.bat" possible without the round about way I did it?
It was at the "additional client parameters' step that I put -smp
What is the current correct response when you get to the "additional client parameters' step?
OH yes I fully agree, great guide and it should pull in more people to help with the work, guaranteed. I have to ask, don't you have to also go to work? (I don't ,just 13 cr hrs of school, but it is not as bad as having to go to work) where do you find the time? I hope the load on you lightens up some.
Last thing is we must change that "Pentium D" in your sig rig.
OH and what about my "Million Point" indicator? It will happen tomorrow
You can add the -smp flag to the client in the "Additional Client Parameters" section so your way works fine. I had them add a flag for two reasons:
1) To learn how to add flags, which they will most likely need in future (-configonly at the very least).
2) Those last 3 settings only take effect after restarting the client. So if they added the -smp flag there the client could have downloaded an a1 core to begin with. Rather than waste time or delete the WU, add the -smp flag to the shortcut.

Might want to add that in for n00bs like me who don't know better, and want a account without to much stuff running in the background to get the most folding done.
I will add that in, thank you.
Although, if you install the SMP client on that secondary account, you can log in with that account instead. So if you plan to have a dedicated account for folding, maybe install the clients on that user instead?

DO you mean i actually need two accounts for this?
No, there's no need for a second account; as he said, it was just for ease.
See above (installing the client in the other account). If that doesn't help, make sure UAC is disabled.
If that still doesn't help, add a screenshot of the error and we'll try work it out.

lol anyway i love smp folding cause i can play games while doing it
24,884? Sounds like a -bigadv WU to me? What project number is that?
